    Tea with Penny Arcade

    Friday 14 December, 3 - 5pm

    The day before her show Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore! opens at the Albany, Penny Arcade is hosting a tea party.

    Penny was a close friend of Quentin Crisp and has a wealth of tales to tell about their friendship and her life on New York's gay scene - past and present. Tea with Penny will be an opportunity for people to meet the 'Queen of the underground' and hear some of her funny yet poignant stories, and to share some of their own life experiences.

    This is a free event. Refreshments available. Booking recommended.

    To ensure your place at Tea with Penny call our box office on 020 8692 4446.
